BEREA - Doubles teams from Harrodsburg and Danville and singles players from Garrard County and Danville reached the semifinals of the boys 9th Region Tournament Saturday.
Robbie Merriman and Travis White of Harrodsburg and Casey Maupin and Chris Bright of Danville will play in separate semifinals matches when play resumes at 1:30 p.m. today at the Berea College courts.
In the singles draw, Phillip Arndt of Garrard and Jeff Ricker of Danville will also be in separate matches.
As one of two teams with two semifinal entries, Danville is also in the thick of the hunt for the team title. Danville, Model and Russell County finished the quarterfinals in a three-way tie in the team standings with 12 points each. Teams get one point for every win by their players.
Merriman and White, the No. 7 seeds in the doubles bracket, will play the top-seeded team from Russell County.
The Harrodsburg duo advanced with a hard-fought 6-4, 7-5 quarterfinal win over the third-seeded team from Madison Central. But Harrodsburg coach Duane Dunagan said he didn't consider their win an upset.
